Hi guys,

If you're like me, and you constantly flip open your keyboard to find that once you go to the Today screen, your Manila 2d makes your device rotate back to Portrait, you're in luck :P

Here's the result of a three days of work:

How it Works:
Inside the .cab is Mortscript, which is vital for this to work. There is a script that runs while Device.exe (which should always be running) that reads whether the device is in Portrait or Landscape, and checks off TouchFlo and checks my Touchflo-skinned RLToday, and vice-versa. Then it redraws the Today screen. However, it does take a while to do all of this, but the effect is worth while

Enjoy and comment please

Does this work with all TouchFlo skins or does it only work for certain ones?

Very nice. 1 Suggestion: post the release date (16OUT) in the title. For some reason, i was expecting to see it ( I think it picks up more attention ).

this one is just convenient shortcuts, while his is just landscape Manila 2D

however, I don't know how that's going to play out, but we'll see!
